Sitting down with Rutledge Davies, president
What are the latest developments and innovations in your field?
A common issue in today’s open-plan office is noise. Noise reduces our ability to concentrate and work efficiently. While open offices enable free-flowing ideas between employees, it also creates distractions. Almost 50 percent of employees in open offices say the lack of sound privacy is the most frustrating aspect in their workplace. Some of the most common sources of noise are your colleagues speaking on the phone or a group chatting nearby. As social beings, humans are attuned to man-made sounds. All you need is a small stimulus to catch your focus. Hear a familiar word or someone’s annoying laughter and all concentration is lost.
What differentiates your business from other specialists in the field?
As a solution to the office annoyance, Corporate Concepts has partnered with Framery, a Finnish company on the cutting edge of acoustically sound private spaces. Framery designs and manufactures soundproof phone booths and meeting pods for open offices to eliminate noise and to help you concentrate in open offices. The Framery booth is perfect for making important calls, participating in video conferences, or just having a private discussion. Unlike traditional soundproof rooms, Framery’s phone booth is ready to use without the time or mess of construction. The booth includes all the equipment you need to make things easy — a table top, air ventilation system, electric socket, and LED lighting. Framery delivers an echo-free, fresh, and comfortable working environment.
What are your goals for this year?
Getting the word out about Framery, because installing a Framery sound insulated, high-quality privacy space/phone booth in your office will significantly increase employee satisfaction and efficiency in the workplace.
